Another Potential Rope-A-Dope By Trump On His Enemies
Trump has fired Comey, Bannon, and others, yet still allows Jeff Sessions to stay as his whipping-boy. If Trump so desired it, all it would take is one summons into the Oval Office and we’d have a new Attorney General.
No, I continue to believe Sessions is right where the president wants him; to serve as his public foil. While Trump berates the A.G. on a weekly basis, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz- whom Trump emphasized was an Obama appointee – is allowed to quietly make the case against the Deep State DOJ and FBI. It is very similar to my Trojan Horse theory about Robert Mueller.
With each public gripe against Sessions, Trump inoculates the Mueller and Horowitz investigations from press criticism when they ultimately exonerate his administration and prosecute the Obama/Clinton misdeeds .
Let me explain.
The MSM takes the bait laid out in Trump’s tweet:
“Trump’s attacking Sessions again. Look at him trying to force his own judicial team to go after his political enemies. That dictator! He’s also trying to discredit Mueller and Horowitz as holdovers who are out to get him. The paranoid fucker!”
The MSM believe their enemy’s enemy is their friend:
“Mueller and Horowitz are men of distinction and honor! Trump is so scared! Mueller is gonna get Trump and Horowitz might find a way to bury the worst of what Barry and Hillary did.”
Yet, I wager what Horowitz puts in his final report will be utterly damning to the prior regime and will dovetail and corroborate much of what the Congressional committees and, yes, Mueller are finding out about about Obama and Clinton’s Russian collusion.
I think these are three separate investigations into the same broad topic. And not one of them are from a Trump DOJ. It will require mental gymnastics by the mainstream media and the left to discredit all of them. I don’t think they can contort that well, especially after spending almost a year of rigidly hyping the Mueller investigation.
From the Way Back Machine
Important article from 2016. If you want to know part of the reason for the censoring of alternative voices in social media, here you go.
A lot of this can also be traced back to the Patriot Act, which was the least patriotic bill ever enacted.
More About Australian Diplomat Alexander Downer
From John Solomon of The Hill:
The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable efforts, documents show.
Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website.
Downer’s name should not be unfamiliar. In Storm Thread #13, I highlighted a Lifezette Article focusing on Michael Smith, a journalist and retired police investigator from Australia who was asked by the Trump-era FBI to provide details about the Clinton Foundation transaction with the Aussie government.
More from The Hill article:
Downer, now Australia’s ambassador to London, provided the account of a conversation with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos at a London bar in 2016 that became the official reason the FBI opened the Russia counterintelligence probe.
But lawmakers say the FBI didn’t tell Congress about Downer’s prior connection to the Clinton Foundation. Republicans say they are concerned the new information means nearly all of the early evidence the FBI used to justify its election-year probe of Trump came from sources supportive of the Clintons, including the controversial Steele dossier.
It would seem that this is gaining traction. The current iteration of the FBI has Smith’s information about the Clinton Foundation/Downer angle which ties into the corruption of the Obama-era FBI in the FISA scandal. Congress is talking about it, as well.
The Big Picture
With the cacophony of media articles that must be foisted on the public for the sake of media ratings and/or pageviews, it’s easy to get distracted from focusing on the larger trends. I get sucked up into it as well. But any time I feel blitzed by the onslaught, I remind myself to shift from that micro to the macro.
So instead of obsessing over the weirdness of the news
cycle circus – and yesterday sure was a doozy, what with the Sam Nunberg thing – let’s focus on this:
The leftist Deep State’s hold on the people is, by most measures, on the wane.
- Hollywood, by both ticket sales and award show ratings, is taking it on the chin.
- Nationalist candidates and parties around the world are gaining momentum compared to decades past.
- Trump’s approval ratings are on the rise despite a MSM onslaught.
- The cases against Clinton and Obama corruption are moving slowly but surely towards prosecution.
And Trump’s plan of discrediting the media is paying dividends.
So, hang in there and be cautiously optimistic. Things are going our way for the time being despite the opposition’s best efforts at gaslighting the populace. The state of our world is still precarious, however. Trends can always change, so be prepared and don’t get complacent.
All The Sins of the “Scandal-Free” Obama Administration Are Being Brought To Light
This time, it is the shameful “Fast and Furious” scandal that is being exhumed.
It really is quite extraordinary what we are witnessing. There has always been a bit of an unwritten rule that once a presidency is over that politicians gloss over older scandals. Fortunately, the public has woken up and is demanding answers. I’ve said it before and will reiterate it again: justice cannot skip generations.
From The Daily Caller:
The Justice Department announced Wednesday it would hand over documents related to the Obama-era Fast and Furious gun scandal to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Former President Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder had previously refused to produce documents requested by Oversight, documents which former Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz at the time called “critical” to pursuing the investigation.
The original Fast and Furious operation — conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — somehow allowed nearly 2,000 firearms to find their way into the hands of Mexican cartel members.
Why Was Hillary In Bed With Russia?
I believe parts of this are very close to the mark. We’re going to find out in the future just how important the Magnitsky Act has been to world politics.
There is a link to Bill Browder’s testimony to Congress about his friend Sergei Magnitsky in this storm thread that is essential reading if you want to understand the whole Russian Narrative.
A Flood of See Eye Aye and Assorted Spooks Seeking Democratic Party Nominations
Remember when everyone who ran for office was a lawyer by trade? Those were quaint times.
From the article linked to in Assange’s tweet:
One quarter of all the Democratic challengers in competitive House districts have military-intelligence, State Department or NSC backgrounds. This is by far the largest subcategory of Democratic candidates. National security operatives (57) outnumber state and local government officials (45), lawyers (35), corporate executives, businessmen and wealthy individuals (30) and other professionals (19) among the candidates for Democratic congressional nominations.
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington this is not.
It’s more like Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Having lost control of the swamp – and thus being less effective in manipulating policy from behind the curtain – it would seem these folks are hoping to employ a new tactic: making the laws directly.
If you think lawyers are bad about placing sneaky, freedom-quelling items into riders on Congressional bills, you’ll love the fine print if a whole caucus of spooks are involved.
Catching Up Again
Sorry for the ten day absence. I caught the flu and it ended up turning into a nasty case of bronchitis. Still building up my strength, but I’m feeling good enough to do some posting…
I didn’t have a chance to comment on the biggest bit of news during those ten days: the sacking and pension-pulling of Andrew McCabe based upon the findings of the FBI OPR.
The howls of phony outrage made by the leftist elements of the Deep State in response to the news have been entirely disproportionate. The loss of a pension by a disgraced bureaucrat has been met with the wailing you would expect had Trump started World War III.
But in a sense, he has: against a shadow government that has chiseled away at our freedoms unhindered for decades.
They’re not taking it well. To wit:
We’ll just have to ask all the Senate Intel staffers Brennan spied on how they feel about that tweet. Perhaps Brennan misspelled “America”. Amerika is more what he has represented. He also served the most venal and corrupt tag-team in our nation’s history and never said boo. His tweet is a classic case of purposeful projection.
Brennan is one of the most dangerous men in the world. The president’s men would do well to interpret that tweet as a veiled threat. Or, given the rumors about Brennan’s chosen religion, would it be more of a fatwa?
Sammy Power rushed to his defense:
Who backed off some. Uh huh.
Our old friend Eric Holder joined the cacophony.
Almost as dangerous as running guns, eh, Eric?
The Deep State couldn’t care less about the plight of poor, destitute Andy McCabe.
This is not outrage that is predominantly on display here.
It is fear. McCabe is but the beginning and they know it.
Uranium One Whistleblower Campbell Was Interviewed By Little Rock Branch Of FBI
On days like today, with the budget failure driving down conservative morale, it’s important to remember that the noose continues to tighten on the Clinton/Obama cabal. Whatever political capital Trump lost today will be more than made up for when Deep State actors are breaking rocks.
Excerpted from The Hill’s John Solomon:
In his first on-camera interview, William Douglas Campbell told The Hill he was interviewed for about five hours in December by FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., who were investigating whether donations to the Clintons’s charitable empire were used to influence U.S. nuclear policy during the Obama years.
Campbell said he was asked specifically about whether donations to the Clintons charitable efforts were used to influence U.S. nuclear policy during the Obama year, and that agents questioned him extensively about claims the Russians made to him that they had routed millions of dollars to an American lobbying firm in 2010 and 2011 with the expectation it would be used to help President Clinton’s charitable global initiative while major uranium decisions were pending before Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
Note that this is being investigated in Little Rock, Arkansas and not Washington. This might mean that it is the entire scope of Clinton misdeeds that are being investigated here, not just Uranium One. Mena is probably included, too.
NXIVM Cult Leaders Being Arrested By FBI For Sex Trafficking
I’ve written about the FBI’s campaign against sex trafficking, Operation Cross-Country , in some earlier threads.
Well, it appears the FBI is ratcheting it up even more.
Members of the NXIVM cult have been arrested in the past few days. And there is some seriously disturbing stuff being alleged, including the literal branding of women by cult leader Keith Raniere, blackmail, and this little gem about a foundation (with a decidedly Orwellian/Lewisian name) created by Nancy Salzman:
A Vancouver woman filed a complaint in August saying she was recruited by Salzman to take part in one of the experiments in 2016, where she was hooked up to a brain activity monitor and shown disturbing footage of murder and rape.
I won’t do more here now than to give some links to articles on the subject because it is so sprawling. But take the time.
The complaint alleges that many of the victims had Raniere’s initials “branded in their pubic regions” with a cauterizing pen in a “tribute” that could last 30 minutes.
“During the branding ceremonies, slaves were required to be fully naked, and the master would order one slave to film while the other held down the slave being branded,” the complaint said.
Salzman’s home is raided.
Smallville actress Allison Mack might be a key recruiter for the sex cult.
There have been Weinsteinesque intimidation tactics used to silence reporters digging too deep into NXIVM.
Some random thoughts:
Recall in the earliest storm threads that I mentioned that Hollywood, big money, and the Deep State are inexorably linked. This is all part of the storm. And it appears Hollywood is going to be blowing up verrrrry soon.
There are also ties between these cult members and the Clinton Global Initiative that bears further investigation. Salzman, for one, is a dues-paying member. Clinton lawyer (and now judge) Richard Mays, Roger Stone, and the father of the sleazy, corrupt Kirsten Gillibrandwere all on the NXIVM payroll.
Speaking of Ms. Gillibrand, remember this tweet from President Trump?
“and would do anything for them”…hmm….
Read all the above links and follow me down this rabbit hole which is pure speculation and probably a stretch on my part. But judge for yourselves:
- Perhaps M.I.A. saw a lot of bad shit when she was with Bronfman and gave some dirt to Assange.
- Assange is relatively tight with The Donald.
- Was Assange’s tweet a shot above the bow of the H.M.S. Hollyweird?
- The Donald is quite familiar with the ways of Hollywood movers-and-shakers and he also appointed Christopher Wray as the head of an FBI that just raided these folks…
I think when this is all over years from now, we’re going to find out that Pizzagate wasn’t so far-fetched after all…
Another Hannity Tick-Tock
He’s been (or his guests have been) getting the juicy stuff for a while now.
Trump Defends 2nd Amendment In Tweet
It appears he heard about former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens’ swipe at the Constitutional right to bear arms.
The last line of defense against tyranny is the 2nd Amendment. Do not be complacent in the 2018 midterms and 2020 general election.
Mueller’s Team Hands Over Exculpatory Evidence To Flynn
From Sara Carter:
The Office of Special Counsel complied with a federal judge’s order and as a result turned over all evidence related to former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s case, according to two sources who spoke to this reporter.
In December, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller to provide Flynn’s attorneys with any and all information that may have been withheld from the case. Sullivan took over as the presiding judge after District of Columbia Judge Rudolph Contreras was recused from the case on Dec. 7. There was no explanation as to why Contreras, who presided over Flynn’s guilty plea on Dec. 3, was recused from the case. Flynn pled guilty to one count of lying to the FBI, despite testimony provided to Congress by former FBI Director James Comey, where he stated that the agents did not believe Flynn had lied about his conversation with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December 2016.
I’ve stated before that General Flynn has little to worry about (other than legal fees) and this is further evidence of that belief. From a January storm thread:
“Flynn will never see the inside of a prison. I’ve said for a while that the charges will be dropped/dismissed – whatever the legal term, I’m not a lawyer – because of conflicts with the way “evidence” was procured or with the investigators themselves. Please see the prior threads for my other thoughts on how Flynn is playing a part in the Kabuki. I think when it is all over, we’ll find out Flynn was perhaps the most instrumental man in Trump’s sting/storm against the Deep State.”
OIG Releases Memo: Horowitz To Investigate FISA Abuse
Pretty sure this is going to be Hannity’s tick-tock:
DOJ OIG Announces Initiation of Review
Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz announced today
that, in response to requests from the Attorney General and Members of Congress, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) will initiate a review that will examine the Justice Department’s and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) compliance with legal requirements, and with applicable DOJ and FBI policies and procedures, in applications filed with the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) relating to a certain U.S. person. As part of this examination, the OIG also will review information that was known to the DOJ and the FBI at the time the applications were filed from or about an alleged FBI confidential source. Additionally, the OIG will review the DOJ’s and FBI’s relationship and communications with the alleged source as they relate to the FISC applications.
If circumstances warrant, the OIG will consider including other issues that may arise
during the course of the review.
Leaks are coming to the good guys for a change, while the Deep State keeps getting fed false info.
Manafort’s Ukraine Ties Subject of Mueller Probe
From Market Watch:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller was authorized in a secret memo to investigate former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s work for the Ukrainian government, in addition to alleged collusion with Russian officials to interfere in the 2016 elections, according to court filings.
The classified August memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was disclosed in a court filing by Mueller’s prosecutors. It seeks to counter arguments by Manafort’s lawyers that his indictment should be thrown out. Manafort has denied the allegations and pleaded not guilty to indictments filed by Mueller’s team in federal courts in Alexandria, Va., and Washington.
Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and George Soros have their grubby fingerprints all over Ukraine. Donald Trump? Not at all. Please read back in earlier threads what I wrote about how Mueller is combing through FARA paperwork – Manafort’s and the Podesta’s most notably. I’ve written in comments and in other threads about six+ months ago that I believe Manafort was a DS plant into the Trump campaign and that he was the start of a chain in the investigation that will lead to the HRC cabal and not Trump. I’ll stand by that until proven otherwise.
